Issue #15 Bookworms, Eaters, and Lovers
Whether you’re spending winter in the snow, rain, or the great indoors we’ve got you covered with an issue on eating, reading, and other necessary pleasures. Special thanks to those who wrote in last week to share their definition of theWhat. It’s encouraging that many of you described it as tips from a friend because we always write with one friendly person in mind (you).

The Books — I’m up in the mountains with friends this week. Here’s what we’re reading by the fire: The Portable Veblen, a lighter version of The Corrections; Jenny Offill’s Dept. of Speculation, a witty novella about the absurdities and beauty of family and life; and The Girl’s Guide To Hunting and Fishing, which captures dating and mating with hilarity. Can’t find time to read? Try theWhat‘s simple tips.
The Eats — LocoL is a healthy fast food restaurant in Watts, Los Angeles by restaurateurs Roy Choi and Daniel Patterson that both locals and luminaries are lining up for. Coming soon to San Francisco and Oakland.
The Drink — Amy and I have long known the aphrodisiacal effects of Damiana, which stimulates the libido as well as the loins.
